    I have been working at Houston Astros part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    My co-workers make my job easier; they're all friendly, love what they do, and help represnt the Astros organization in a great way. You get to choose which games you want to work. The company provides food during our break and that time is included in our salary. We get a couple of freebies every now and then (tickets, jerseys). The overall all work experience is great.

    Cons

    Well of course not kuch promotion (maybe eventually become a supervisor). There is some miscommunication between the different departments. There are times when staff is shorthanded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just one thing, have a meeting with all the heads of each department so that we can be on the same page.

    I worked at Houston Astros full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Being around baseball.
    Cool atmosphere.
    Nice people to work with.
    Owner is friendly and is polite to all staff no matter what level.

    Cons

    Pay is adequate.
    Not a lot of advancement options.
    At some point working in sports for little pay gets old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people decent money, it's obvious the money isn't on the field.

    I have been working at Houston Astros

    Pros

    playing baseball as a job is what everyone dreams of doing, and you get nearly 5 months off each year

    Cons

    lack of pay and long hours, also the fact that you stay in bad hotels and take long bus trips in the minors
